Well, my father is an ASE mechanic and he had the right tools for the job. Me and him were able to do it, was about 2~ hours. I do a lot of light repairs myself, and as long as you have the tools it does not seem like a huge task to take on. Keep in mind you are going to need an alignment when the suspension is modified.
I just put on new Monroe mounts, Moog coil springs and KYB struts. I must say I like it a lot! I can tell the performance of the struts seem to change on temperature. But I've just installed them and the temperature in lovely Illinois has been swinging from 40 to 90 degrees recently.
Not to mention the new coil springs are awesome, the car rides 2"+ inches higher now. I had to get new ones upon removing the passenger strut tower and discovering the spring was shattered.
Changed @ 224,000 miles. Ran about $350-400
